Here we are with another
great 60 page issue. It is truly
astonishing how much material is still being received for each issue nearly 30
years after Bing’s passing.
With Bing’s voice being
heard all over the place as the holiday season approaches, what could be better
than to sit down with a glossy magazine dedicated to all things Bing? In this
issue, Martin McQuade reports on a marvellous fiftieth anniversary celebration
of Bing’s classic film High Society
which resulted in HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco joining us as a member. Greg Van Beek reviews the Christmas
gifts sent by Bing to his friends over the years, Malcolm Macfarlane has an
in-depth examination of the Hooper ratings for Bing’s radio shows and
John Kobylecky investigates Bing’s
British Hits between 1945 and 1948. Bing’s niece, Carolyn Schneider,
contributes an article about her Uncle Everett (Bing’s business manager
for many years) and we have reports on the recent promotional activities by
Carolyn and by Kathryn Crosby. Keith Parkinson discusses Bing’s film Blue Skies and there is a report on the
All of the usual features
continue with Ken Crossland reviewing the latest releases on CD and DVD, Bert
Bishop noting recent Bing ‘sightings’ on radio and TV and Gord
Atkinson writing about Peggy Lee.
And of course the marathon A-Z of
Bing’s Movies series continues.
There’s a lot more
too. Don’t miss this one!
As we always
say when announcing our latest issue, if you are interested in Bing Crosby,
then this has to be the magazine for you.
